Re: New Record? Post here.

I noticed my system with 10 years of data is showing a few new records for this Sep and Oct.
(The two web pages were edited at different times and use slightly different ways of indicating records).

Re: Comparing with one year ago

The shorter format is only available if the only instruction within the PHP script section within the HTMl is an echo. This bit of php <?php $return = calculateBeaufort($required_fields[17],'<#windunit>'); echo "$return"; ?>) has an instruction that is not an echo followed by an echo, so t...

Re: Comparing with one year ago

It was a decade ago, after leaving paid work, while acting as a full time carer for my late mum that I first taught myself HTML to pass the time between carer duties. Looking back, it was a miserable time coping with her terminal illness, but I did feel better for learning that skill and I have foun...

Re: Comparing with one year ago

To repeat my previous answer explicitly, so you can copy and paste: You currently have missed out the class in the opening tag "<td>" and you have also missed out the closing tag "</td>" for the two extra table cells you have added to the end of the table row. <td> <?php echo &qu...

Re: Comparing with one year ago

Simple, look at your HTML code your PHP script produces. <tr class="table_two"> <td class="table_two">Low&nbsp;Temperature</td> <td class="table_two">8.2&nbsp;&#176;C</td> <td class="table_two">at&nbsp;07:04</td> <td class="table_two"...

Re: Site going down.

Pleased to report I have an entry in dayfile.txt for the 17th. The 16th is missing so I'll have to add that manually. I'll use the data from WU. It was an unremarkable day weather-wise so no other data needs editing. Ray, I see you now have added a line for 16th on http://www.cheadlehulmeweather.co...

Re: Customising which lines are displayed on graphs for Cumulus MX - now solved

Ideally I'd have liked to fill the area with a paler shade of the same hue (green) but I've not found a way of modifying colours yet.

Re: This Year's Rainfall Total

William, my final suggestion (prompted by Water01 suggestion). Does your version of the daily summary on your 'table' web page treat single tip rainfall amounts as not significant? If so, the various ignored 0.1 (or whatever value is set) might sum to the discrepancy you report. Some versions of tha...

Re: This Year's Rainfall Total

A few additional thoughts, that might all be red herrings!... The table web page you link to mentions some problems with rain gauge and with Davis commmunications, did you make some adjustments in connection with those problems that amount to your discrepancy? As you use a Davis station, Cumulus wil...

Re: new Record it flash a led

http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Webtags_as_boolean_operators_in_HTML#Alarms was written for Cumulus 1, to simply explain how to add any alarm to a web page. In your case you might need an image that flashed a picture of a LED. In Cumulus 1, the alarm is cleared (unset) once it has been looked at. Most...

Re: Comparing with one year ago

Thanks sfws! Thank you for sharing the script too. Thank you for using it, your web page has a very neat look. I am pleased implementing a 6 year old script apparently did not involve too much effort from you. If the forum does manage to stay up after Monday, seeing my script being used by you migh...

just need to sort Temperature Range / Dominant Direction /Wind Run out as it not showing up ? It would need me to do a lot of studying to check how the script does these calculations, because on my own test (not online) site I have totally revised how I calculate these. For temperature range, the s...
